Its being reported on FB & BBS that 'Jacko' died last night. No link & not confirmed as of yet, if true, a sad loss as he was (imho) our greastest 'keeper.

Finally, confirmation . . . [Link]

My Mum had a crush on John Jackson. A really nice, unassuming bloke and the best keeper never to get a full England cap.
I got his autograph on my maths book once when he was on East Croydon station with John Craven when I was going home one day from school. I had a maths book that said "To Mum" and a signature on its cover all year.

If true, RIP

 


Living down here does have some advantages. At least you can see them cry.

He was on the pitch with a bunch of yester year Palace heroes only a few months ago, he looked very smart in his grey suit, seemed in good health with a really broad smile - if its true he has passed it would indeed be sad news - much loved by many a Palace supporter -

You probably know, he lived in Hangleton.

The sad news was relayed by David Payne yesterday.

Oh. I am distraught.

I have seen them all since Vic Rouse and he was indisputably our finest keeper.

In his era the ball was leather and heavy, goalmouths were a sea of mud and centre forwards came barging in with impunity. He was as brave as they came and in another time he would have been England's number one.

I shall have the happiest memories of Jacko and even when he left us for Orient he continued as well as ever.

You can occasionally have glimpses of his brilliance when ITV show repeats of the Big Match.

He deserves a memorial statue at Selhurst and I will gratefully contribute to one.

R.I.P.

 


I'm supposed to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find someone older than me.

He really was a Palace icon, hard to think of anyone more so with the possible exception of Jim Cannon.

I feel like he just went from a great hero into being a bit of history. That is gut wrenching when he was an idol.

I was really upset when Bill Glazier left for Coventry, but soon became a huge Jacko fan. I remember him getting quite cross with a Leeds player once. RIP JJ

Edit it was Coventry not Leeds.

Sad days for all Palace fans, IMO also are greatest GK ever!

A sign of the times too. How many papers now would expect fans to know the nickname of a Civil War general? Jacko played a while ago but not THAT long ago.
